to achieve. i will say partially disagree. finding number 27, a department first perspective, not the city wide perspective, intended in the administrative code has resulted in lack of coordination and communication between the departments and for this i would state agreed. the fact that these projects have taken so long to take forward is the attitude that perminates city agencies. next i also agree and it's difficult to move departments in the same direction. 29, department heads and cio's don't grant the authority for them in the administrative code as governing their own plans and actions. for this i agree. finding 30. neither coit or the cio believe in their ability to enforce these policies and initiatives and i patiently agree with that statement. while coit likes to behave they have the authority to enforce policies and initiatives because it's a diffused body there is no one to hold them accountable. the last finding there is no secure or immediate consequences for departments failing to implement in city wide initiatives and meet time lines for compleetion. i agree. there

the mayor, the first asian american mayor of the city and county of san francisco. and i don't know whether to offer my congratulations or condolences. i am so proud to consider you as one of my fellow chinese community activists. now, i was thinking today -- thank you, mark leno thank you, good friend of mine, one of my dearest friends. you know, i was thinking today, i do everything at the last minute, what am i going to say? so i sat down, you know, i really should put something down because it's a big moment not for myself personally but for all of us. and then a song came on the radio that i'm sure many of you have heard before, it's the impossible dream, right? yes? so i was thinking, oh, the universe is sending me a message here. you know, the cosmos. so i listened to the radio and i remember when the planners of the event said, oh, lawrence, you cannot speak more than 5 minutes. oh, no problem. i lied. how can you thank so many people who have done so much in 5 minutes? you know, in 1994, think back before many of you were born, actually, in 1994 i campaigned for the college
